Hillary Clinton: Israel has
‘lack of generosity … lack
of empathy’ for Palestinians

Daily Caller, by Gregg Re

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/2/2012 5:31:20 AM

Speaking at a forum at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy in Washington on Friday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Israel is suspicious of Palestinians and doesn’t care enough about their plight. “I’m not making excuses for the missed opportunities of the Israelis, or the lack of generosity, the lack of empathy that I think goes hand-in-hand with the suspicion,” Clinton said, after praising the country’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, for working with her in 2009 to offer a moratorium on building new Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank.

Wrong! The Palestinians teach their children, from the womb, to hate and kill Israelis.

I half-expected the Hildabeest to quote Mayor Richard J. Daley´s gentle remark to Senator Abe Ribicoff at the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago [which I will not print here ´cause I wish to continue posting].

The Beast is awful, but at least the Dems are in lock-step in their hatred of Israel.

When the Palestinian people rise up against Muslims who teach their children to blow themselves up in crowded Israeli restaurants, synagogues and towns, perhaps we can talk about who is generous and who is not.

Perhaps when Israelis begin targeting innocents civilians rather than targeting the military and terrorists who have openly said they want to wipe Israel off the map, we can discuss generosity.

Perhaps when the very goal of Palestinian terrorists is to target civilians -- children and women are not matter -- we may be able to talk "generosity".

In the meanwhile, Hillary Clinton should stop listening to her anti-Israeli American puppeteers and get real.

Here´s woman who´s old man is worth millions and she still hasn´t paid of her old campaign debts and is planning on running again.

To say Israel isn´t generous is totally insane. When ever there´s a natural disaster Israeli doctors are among the first on the scene.

In a 2 state solution,Israel would be more than happy to offer aid to the Palestinians. This is a reckless and absurd comment.

FTA: “So, yes, there is more that the Israelis need to do to really demonstrate that they do understand the pain of an oppressed people in their minds, and they want to figure out, within the bounds of security and a Jewish democratic state, what can be accomplished,” Clinton added.

An oppressed people, really? The Palestinians have always been a pawn in the hands of Jewish hating Islamists. They need this so called "oppression" to justify their inbred hatred and gin up violence against Israel. This conflict is not about land. It is all about genocide. The Islamist will never seek peace with the Israelis because their goal is to wipe them from the face of the earth. They openly and enthusiastically say this. How do you negotiate with this mindset? Hillary and her fellow progs are no friend of Israel. They have thrown their lot in with the genocidal maniacs.

Yet, like the "won" she will get 80% of the solid Jewish Democrat vote in 2016. She is an embarrassment but we must now have a woman President now that we have checked the box for having a black. We have also now checked the box for Marxist / Communist as well with the votes in 2008 and 2012!

Agree #21, #22. It was and is plain as the nose on your face what this Democratic Party is all about these days. Obama is anti-Israel, Hildebeast is anti-anybody as long is it is politically feasible for her to get votes. Still the Jewish community fell hook line and sinker and voted the Democrats back into power this past election. I´m drained, it is up to God, we´ve done what we can, I think we´ve passed the tipping point.

Lack of generosity? Like the Arab nations the Palestinians originated from? I recall seeing an article in US News & World Report, in regards to the Palestinian origins. They are "refugees" from other Arab nations, kicked out/displaced, with an ulterior motive by the original hosting Arab country to be a pain in the side to Israel.

How about being objective, Hildebeast and asking the Arab nations, where the Palestinians originated from, to step up and be generous? This mentality that Isreal owes anything to the Palestinians, just because they want Israeli lands, is obsurd. Israel gave them Gaza, so where do the wants end? Well, we already know-the Palestinians want it all.

That ´demographic´ would vote 75% for Hillary, even knowing she is controlled in bed and out by a Muslim Brotherhood operative.

She could call publicly for the complete dissolution of Israel and still get 70% of ´that demographic´.

The Israelis have been far more compassionate to a deplorable bunch of primordial savages that are trying to kill them at every turn using any means at their disposal, than most cultures would be. When you try to help them they just bite the hand that feeds them. Remember what happened when they turned the Gaza strip over to them?

http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2005/09/these_greenhous.html

The Palis took over a well-run, prosperous area, (thanks to the Israelis) and like locusts proceeded to destroy the greenhouses and the sewage system, turning the strip into? yet another unproductive islamofascist slum. Then they proceeded to use it as a base to launch rockets at Israel...oh and of course dig tunnels.
As far as the Hillbag is concerned, how anyone could take that lying hag seriously is really beyond my comprehension. She is as two-faced as it gets... and both of them are ugly as sin!

If my neighbor shot rockets at my house, after I generously gave him property and food, I would probably erase him and his house. The UN just gave a terrorist group statehood status, perhaps we should declare the UN an enemy too.

Hillary clinton is one of the most despicable candidates that the dems could run in 2016, therefore, expect her to be on the ticket.

I don’t suppose Hillary is in danger of losing the money and votes of American Jews no matter how much she disses Israel since liberal Jews in America don’t much care about Israel and probably agree with her. But some American Jews invested lots of their money to help the Palestinians build greenhouses in Gaza after Israel pulled out. The idea was to go beyond giving Palestinians a fish, which will feed them for a day, and to teach them to fish for themselves so they could feed themselves for their lifetimes.

It was a foolish idea at the time, the Palestinians want to make bombs, not flowers. The greenhouses were never built because the Palestinians tore them down before they were finished.

It´s a funny thing about people facing certain obliteration at the hands of those who hate them. When your suspicions about a evil mob of butcherous killers turn out to be spot on, kind of kicks that "empathy" and "generosity" stuff right out the window.

The great hypocrisy of it all is that should Israel finally decide to exterminate this murderous rabble from the face of the Earth, not a few of their "Arab brothers" would quietly breath a sign of relief.

I think american jews are dems because FDR sent out the word to say he was a jew and his real name was roosenfelt. He was the first and worst of the dem presidents to get us into wars and trigger the Pearl Harbor attack. He wanted a 4th and 5th term as prez and fortunately, he died. He was very ill and no business running for his 3rd and 4th terms. Hyde Park was full of info from the people that worked at the estate and they loved Eleanor, but hated him.

That is not quite the real story #24. Arafat a plain everyday criminal was ousted from in Russia with a merry band of outlaws demanding the nation.
As they made their way from one nation to another calling themselves the Palestine Liberation Army and creating one massacre after another they were rejected by all Arab countries.
One climax was the attempt to kill the Jordan king and take over Jordan. That resulted in the deaths of 10,000 people before they were thrown out. They he then moved on to tear apart Lebanon.
Only after Arafat decided he could gain Arab support by eliminating Israel did his band become Palestinians moving into Gaza and the West bank. That gang has lost out to hamas..

I never thought I could ever say this, but Hillary just might be a worse president than Obama -- but I don´t think he will ever give her a chance to see. I think Obama is going to want to do this for life - like a dictator. He is getting too much respect and swell head from this and I don´t think he will ever want to give it up. The people who put him in office think he is great - but I think they will see that he is not but it will be too late.

This coming from a woman who has a very corrupt history since the 70s Her list of failures especially reguarding Israel and the Jews are just too numerous to mention. I´ll just say thta she and her darling hubby have been big fans of Arafathead and the PLO for a long time. The fact that Cankles is our SecState is a joke. Just a thought since PIAPS is a liberal hag. What does she know about generosity and empathy?

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American
Plane, but No One Seems to Know Why

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Cost of Treatment May Influence Doctors

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

Obama offers new insults,

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

´Deeply Ashamed´ Ferry Captain
Among First to Abandon Ship

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

CBO shows it’s Paul Ryan 4,
Obama 0 on budget targeting

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
